I have a 98 Adventurer and I do not have lights on the 12 volt side. I have charged the batteries and cleaned all the terminals. The lights work when I am plugged in to shore power but when I unplug the lights do not work. I found a 40 amp breaker tripped under the dash I reset the breaker but still no lights. I have looked for Solenoids in the battery area but they are not there?
Any ideas where they could be?
You should have a bank of switches somewhere near the entry door. One of the switches is a battery shut off, commonly referred to as a "salesman switch". Check to make sure that it is not in the off position.

Is there a false panel on the riser at the top step? Many times that carpeted panel is just held on by Velcro and has the solenoids hidden behind it. Some in the late to mid 90's had a master disconnect (barrel switch with a lever) under the hood too. Some had a fuse between the inverter and the batteries. When on shore power are you getting any voltage from the inverter/charger to the batteries or did you have to use an automotive charger for that? If the inverter is not charging the batteries then follow the power from the inverter to the batteries and where the power stops is where you will find your problem. On some of those the inverter is under the refrigerator accessible from a steel panel behind a basement door.

I have a 98 Adventurer 35wp , I have looked on the firewall do not see any Solenoids. There is no shut off switch by the steps and no Solenoids under the steps.
The above linked Front End Wiring Install diagram shows the electrical box under the front hood on the driver's side (See detail A-A). There is a cover over the box that needs to be removed to see the solenoids.
